Warming Hearts & Homes

The SHARING fund, also known as the Chesapeake Emergency Energy Recipient Program (CHEERP), was incorporated in 1983. Last year alone, over 400 grants totaling more than $100,000 were provided to those in need on Delmarva.

Chesapeake Utilities Corporation created the SHARING fund with donations provided by customers, employees, the community and Chesapeake Utilities Corporation to ensure that the elderly, ill and those facing financial hardship are not forgotten during the cold winter months when energy bills are at their peak.
